Baby Buckeye

SANDUSKY, Ohio - A couple who root for Ohio State say they've made sure their baby daughter embraces their football allegiance by giving her a name that implies automatic fandom: Scarlet Gray.

And those are the colors that Justin and Kim King's 3-month-old daughter wears as her family watches Saturday games on their big-screen television.

Justin King tells The Sandusky Register the infant won't have any choice but to be a Buckeyes fan for life.

Scarlet's 3-year-old sister doesn't share that obligation. Her name is Violet.

TME How long before a Michigan fan names their poor kid 'Blue Wolverine?'


COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa - Police are looking for a man who is suspected of stealing more than $1,000 worth of bras from a western Iowa mall.

The Daily Nonpareil reports that the man walked into a Victoria's Secret Store at Mall of the Bluffs in Council Bluffs around 11 a.m. on Wednesday. Police say he took more than 22 bras valued at $1,250.

Authorities have not identified the suspect. He was described as a black man with a Mohawk, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and aviator style sunglasses.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.

TME You'd think Mr. T could afford to buy as many bras as he wanted.


BAYONNE, N.J. - Assault charges have been filed against a northern New Jersey man who was found naked in a woman's bathtub after he refused to leave her apartment.

The Jersey Journal reports that Bayonne police responded to the apartment Thursday night and learned 20-year-old Alvaro Grajales of Jersey City had locked himself inside the bathroom.

Grajales allegedly threatened to kill anyone who came through the door, but officers pushed their way in and found him naked in the tub. Grajales allegedly began spitting at the officers, but was arrested after a brief struggle.

Grajales faces two counts of aggravated assault with bodily fluids. One officer suffered a laceration to his right forearm and was treated at a hospital.

A phone number for Grajales couldn't be found Saturday.

TME We were just wondering what Pauly D has been up to.

Only at Arby's

LANCASTER, Pa. - Police in central Pennsylvania say they found a suspected groper of a fast-food worker by following a trail of curly fries.

It started when a female employee at an Arby's in East Lampeter Township, Lancaster County, called police Wednesday night saying she was groped by a man as she handed over his order at the drive-thru window.

The employee gave police a description of the car, which was found outside a motel less than a mile away.

Authorities said they spotted a trail of Arby's curly fries and sauce from the vehicle to the room of 36-year-old James Cowan of Fitzgerald, Ga.

He was charged with a single count of indecent assault and released on bail pending a Nov. 1 hearing. It couldn't be determined if he had an attorney.

TME Ultimately, isn't actually eating at Arby's punishment enough?

Fragrant fandom

GREEN BAY, Wis. - A sixth-grader in western Wisconsin proudly wears a green and gold jersey in support of his favorite team - the Green Bay Packers. And, it's a shirt he's worn every day for nearly three years.

David Pehl, of Holmen, says the Packers jersey was given to him for Christmas a couple years ago and once he put it on, he just couldn't take it off. The jersey is hand-washed every other day, but after 1, 034 days of consecutive wear, the once-bright jersey has faded and the name on the back - ``Rodgers'' - is barely legible.

David's dad, Dave Pehl, tells WKBT-TV he may be responsible for planting the idea because he mentioned a boy who had worn a Brett Favre jersey for four years. Now, his son is shooting for that record.

TME The kid should just be thankful that he's not a Lions fan.

Renal romance

BROWNSBURG, Ind. - A central Indiana woman who promised to donate one of her kidneys to a man she barely knew has married him three years after his successful transplant surgery.

Chelsea Clair and Kyle Froelich met at a 2009 car show when he was 19 and she was 22. Clair learned that day that Froelich had a serious kidney disease _ and she told him then and there she would give him one of hers.

She underwent the necessary tests and ended up being a near perfect match. Three years ago, she donated one of her kidneys to Froelich.

The Indianapolis Star reports that the couple was married Oct. 12 at the Danville Conservation Club, the venue that hosted the car show where they met.

TME The kidney wants what it wants.
